FDA Accepts Arno Therapeutics' IND for AR-12 a PDK1 Inhibitor That Blocks the PI3K/Akt Pathway

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Arno Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on oncology therapeutics, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") accepted the Company's Investigational New Drug ("IND") application for the use of AR-12, a potentially first-in-class, orally available, PDK1 inhibitor that blocks the PI3K/Akt pathway and induces the endoplasmic reticulum stress pathway. Acceptance of the IND permits Arno to initiate a Phase I clinical trial in adults with advanced or recurrent solid tumors or lymphoma for which no standard therapy is available. Arno expects the Phase I clinical trial to begin during the second half of 2009 and will be designed to assess the safety and early evidence of activity of AR-12.

"We are excited that AR-12 has received IND acceptance by the FDA allowing us to begin our Phase I studies. Our preclinical data has demonstrated that AR-12 is active in a wide range of tumor types and it also shows promising activity in combination with several widely used approved cytotoxic as well as molecularly targeted anti-cancer agents," stated Dr. Roger G. Berlin, Chief Executive Officer of Arno.
